Our first romantic getaway is secluded in Wisconsin’s beautiful countryside. Rightfully named, A Secret Cottage provides the perfect backdrop for a peaceful, romantic weekend.
The property offers a private fish-stocked lake, bird watching, paddleboats and several nearby golf courses. Guests also can hike the trail around the lake at John Muir’s boyhood home or climb Observatory Hill.
Those seeking romance will find it in the cottage’s fireplace, whirlpool and expansive skylight. A complimentary bottle of wine also is included, so couples can toast to their romantic weekend alone.
Couples looking to keep the romance going through dinner can visit one of the many restaurants located in Wisconsin Dells. Check out House of Embers, which offers a private romantic area for two and is only a half-hour ride from the cabin.
Door County Cottages allows guests to choose from multiple cottages. This property offers couples the option to snuggle up in a single bedroom or invite friends to spend the weekend in cottages featuring 3+ bedrooms. Amenities include whirlpools, saunas, and peaceful porches.
When visitors head outdoors, Door County’s romantic landscape will provide the perfect backdrop. Play 18 holes at The Orchards golf course or relax at Spa Verde, the only environmentally friendly spa in the area.
After a day of fun, guests can grab food with a view at the Hof Restaurant & Lounge also located in Egg Harbor. The restaurant offers a breathtaking view of the shoreline and mouth-watering meals including fresh Door County whitefish, prime rib and steaks.
For those who prefer nature to necessities, Cliffside Cabin offers floor to ceiling windows which showcase the breath taking views this cabin offers. Besides being built on the side of a rock cliff and having incredibly unique views, the cabin also features a wraparound porch, hiking through the surrounding woods, canoeing and wildlife galore!
Guests will also notice the rustic feel of the cottage as power is derived from a solar cell battery and generator, and water tanks provide water to the kitchen and bathroom.
Those looking to escape the wilderness for a few hours of entertainment can check out the neighboring city of Spring Green and the American Players Theater, which offers five rotating shows in the outdoor amphitheater.
Couples looking for luxury during their romantic getaway should look no further than Canoe Bay. This property provides an ideal location for those looking to recapture the romance and offers rooms, villas and cottages to suit every couple’s luxury preferences.
Canoe Bay cottages offer all the comforts of home and romantic seclusion with private entrances, decks and views. Complimentary room service breakfast and optional massage appointments are also available.
The Bay even offers an on-site lakeside dining room complete with a fixed chef’s menu every night. For active guests, the property is home to three private lakes with canoes, kayaks and row boats. Additionally, Canoe Bay offers an organic garden, library, fitness center and hiking trails.
A cozy and comfortable cabin stay awaits at Balsam Ridge Lodging. Featuring an indoor fireplace, large whirlpool tub, log-cabin interior and lofted bedroom, the two cabins at Balsam Ridge offer the ultimate relaxing retreat. A short walk from your cabin takes you to a private dock with a bench to enjoy the serene Turtle Flambeau Flowage, or, if you’d prefer to be out on the water, pontoons are available to rent directly from the property.
Adventure-seekers will enjoy the added benefit of being close to ATV/UTV and snowmobile trails, as well as plenty of options for nearby hiking, fishing, cross-country skiing, and more.
